I have taken up bike riding, and am currently constantly covered in the bruises of ineptitude, which means that my usual wardrobe of skirts and dresses, with skin coloured tights is not working.
I rarely wear trousers, as I have really long legs (inside leg 35"). And I struggle to get ones to fit. I would love cigarette trousers, but they are generally too tight on my calves, as they come up shorter on me than normal people. Normally long tall Sally is my go to place for jeans.
I am a size 10/12 dependent on shop. Please please someone help me!!!
I am not as tall as you and I have to wear blue smart trousers for work (nurses tunic above) the nicest trousers I have are (and I have tried quite a few) from Sainsburys!!! I buy the regular length but they do a longer length too and I am sure they come in black. I buy the slim line leg, not quite as slim as a cigarette trouser but slimmer than normal.
I am only a 34" inside leg but have had exactly the same problem. Next Tall are long enough but just not my shape - waist too big, hips too tight.
I love GAP Tall at the moment. I have three pairs of cropped trousers form there black, navy and silver grey. I've found the Tall sizes come up slightly larger than the same size in a standard length. I had to size down in most styles. They are not especially short on me and would still look good an inch further up my leg so might be OK for you.
